Owner description: Public and private 3 hour sails aboard Stars & Stripes USA-11, the authentic 1992 America's Cup racing yacht sailed by Dennis Conner. Take the helm, grind the winches, or just hang on as this amazing high performance racer zips around San Diego Bay at twice the speed of the average sailboat. A truly unique and memorable experience. Soft drinks, water, peanuts, & pretzels are provided at no cost. You are welcome to bring your own camera, but a crew member will be taking complimentary photos & videos of all the action on board as well as the sights of San Diego Bay. After the sail, complimentary refreshments are served while viewing the days activities on our flat screen TV. The photos & videos will then be posted on Google Web Albums for free access and use. The total cost (no additional taxes or fees) of $125 for adults & $75 for children (5-18) is the best value and most exciting venue on San Diego Bay.

This was a team building event for us & it was fabulous! The knowledge of the crew, owners, and the facts they point out were fascinating. I'll bring my family back to experience it also!

This was a great way to see the San Diego Bay and gain insight as to how this type of racing sailboat operates. The crews was safe and made sure everyone had a good experience. The skipper made sure everyone had a turn at the helm.
I will be booking again when I return to San Diego!

A very safe and fun way to spend 3 hours. We got some great wind and speeds. Just the right balance of working the boat and sitting back and enjoying the sun and waves. Very talented and easy going crew. Loved the whole experience. A highlight for a trip to San Diego

Nice ride with beautiful views. Crew is awesome, friendly, knowledgable, etc. They let everyone have a chance to drive and help with the sails. They provide drinks and snacks. They also take lots of great pictures and send them to you free!

This is an amazing excursion to experience! From the moment we arrived until the moment we left there were un-ending smiles to greet us and make us feel welcome and excite us! The staff and crew were lovely to speak to and learn from, they were kind, knowledgeable and playful in nature!! Our photographer was so much fun and took amazing photos and video!! Thank you to the Captain and Crew for a most fantastic day for myself and my family!!! We will definitely be back again with more friends!! We look forward to helping again with the main sail, steering the boat and feeling that wind and sun on our faces!! Thank you so very much!!

Warmest Regards,
Lola Bond
